An Open Letter to Peter Heck

Dear Mr. Heck,

We at Malott's Blog would like to congratulate you on Thursdays edition of the Peter Heck Show. In one hour's time you managed to insult Illegal Immigrants, Ted Kennedy, and the entire nation of France. Yes, you had a good day.

However, we are a little concerned that you failed to recognize the French National Anthem. As a history teacher you should know that this was the song the French patriots sang in the movie Casablanca, showing their disdain for the Germans. If you watch that scene and fail to get a lump in your throat, then you're either terribly insensitive... or you're a Nazi.

We also thought you should recognize the French anthem because... Well... There's really no polite way to say this. Mr Heck, we know your grandfather. Your grandfather is a friend of ours. And your grandfather is of French descent.

This must come as a terrible shock. But before you rush out and buy a razor blade, know that even with this genealogical impediment, it is still possible for you to have a full and productive life. It isn't likely, but it's possible.

Keep up the great work. We at Malott's Blog continue to be impressed with your knowledge, your sophistication, and your amazing ability to pronounce foreign words.
